Wild riders have talismaic tatoo's giving them a + 6 wardsave.
And they are forest spirits giving them a +5 wardsave.

Does this mean they have a +4 wardsave?
Making them the most durable Elf troop the woodies have?

No, they have a 6+ and a 5+, and you choose between them. Against spells their 5+ is negated but their magic resistance boosts the 6+ back to 5+, which is nice.

so basicly they always have a +5 ward save against magical and normal attacks?

No. They have a 5+ against spells (Tattoos 6+ plus MR) and against non-magical attacks (Forest Spirit 5+). They have a Tattoos 6+ against magical non-spell attacks (e.g. various magical shooting/close combat attacks).

Ward saves do not stack unless specifically stated. As far as I am aware, the Mark of Tzeentch is the only ward save which stacks.

Magic Resistance is a similar ward save bonus now.
